TK1200 Karbon Modular Helmet ECE/DOT
Available in USA and Canada ONLY.
KLIM has created the world’s first Grand Touring helmet. Revolutionizing modular helmet design and setting a new precedent for the lightest, highest-performing modular helmet for the world’s longest rides. The TK1200 provides massive comfort, adapting to changing riding conditions with ease while setting the standard in lightweight performance.
MASTER THE RIDING ENVIRONMENT
KLIM introduces the first optically superior shield system capable of the highest performance in all light conditions. Featuring proprietary adaptive lens technology from TRANSITIONS®, KLIM’s TK1200 reacts instantly to changing UV levels. Riders enjoy reduced eye fatigue, increased light and damaging ray protection and superior clarity thanks to minimal lens distortion. By eliminating archaic internal visors, KLIM can deliver a superior riding experience with full field-of-vision and adaptive lens technology.
KLIM developed a proprietary break-away chin bar into the TK1200 that reduces force upon the head and neck in the event of an accident with the modular system in the open position.
ENGINEERED AERO ACOUSTICS
Focus on the road ahead and fully engage with the ride thanks to KLIM’s perfected Aero Acoustic performance. Combining sleek and stable aerodynamics, intelligent ventilation design and a premium liner system, KLIM makes it easy to keep riding mile after mile.
SUPERIOR FROM THE START
The KLIM TK1200 features a full carbon-fiber shell construction done differently. Pre-impregneted fibre weaves combine with our proprietary Polymerisation heat and molding process to ensure precise temperature and duration of resin cure times. This hyper attention-to-detail ensures a higher quality construction and unmatched hand-made consistency only found in KLIM’s premium helmets.
FIT RIGHT, FEEL RIGHT
Featuring an intermediate oval fit, KLIM’s sizing system allows riders to lock into a helmet that is snug and tight, but without pressure points. This attention to detail ensures comfort extends beyond the showroom feel and for years to come. Combined with KLIM’s ergonomic 3D Padding and washable, removable hypoallergenic liner, the K1R was built to fit like a dream in speed.
KLIM’s micro-metric buckle securement allows for quick fitment and even faster release--getting your custom fit experience on and off with ease. Set it and forget it and experience the best fit on the street.
IT’S GOOD TO BE SEEN
KLIM’s leading passive safety design experience and proficiency in hi-visibility and retroreflective materials is infused in theTK1200’s DNA. Rear-facing reflective accent materials on the helmet liner increase low-light visibility of the rider’s head. The real result: riders are seen sooner and more often by traffic’s headlights.
Engineered to provide more effective ventilation than the old guard of helmet brands, KLIM built a fresh-air system worthy of the next generation. The adjustable intake port directs airflow to the crown of the head, filling the volume more efficiently and cooling more rapidly.
Thanks to innovative construction techniques and premium materials, The KLIM TK1200 meets or exceeds the most demanding ECE and DOT standards for street helmets at reduced weight compared to the competition.
Premium Polycarbonate Anti-Scratch shield tech takes the lead with Pinlock ready systems standard to ensure a clear road ahead. Clear and Smoke options available to custom tune the ride to conditions.
Ratings & Reviews
Insanely Light and no more sunglasses!
The TK1200 is better than any other lid I have owned. My wife and I both wear the TK1200. The cheek pads make comfortable contact along the jaw bone. Other helmets have pushed uncomfortably on the cheeks all the way to the cheeks bones. The Transitions visor goes dark quite fast. This visor replaces the need for any other sun glasses. The chin vent is pulled down to open, this took a bit to get used to as it is reverse of what I was used to. The chin release button moves up to actuate instead of inward. Ventilation is good. The visor stays in the first several click spots away from the locked closed position without being pushed shut by the wind. By locking the visor in the closed position the noise diminishes and even at freeway speeds the noise level is manageable. I use ear plugs only for longer rides at speed. The helmet is insanely light, but I do not get any air turbulence vibrating the helmet even at 90 MPH. I ride both a Power Cruiser and a full bagger.
Part 1 - The TK1200 is quickly becoming the best helmet I have worn!
1000 character limit on a review is not enough for this helmet.<br>I ride around 10-15k miles a year on my Harley RoadGlide throughout Colorado and the surrounding states.<br><br>Shield:<br>The clarity and overall visibility with the transitions shield is amazing! <br>It adjusts quickly and smoothly enough that to truly appreciate the speed and darkness you just need to open the shield after being in sunlight for about 20 seconds. It has not taken much time to forget about fighter pilot drop downs.<br>To my eye the shield has a very slight amber tint, not enough to distort any colors but enough to bring clarity on a slight overcast day.<br>The shield provides excellent field of view both peripheral and vertical. I found myself not needing to swivel my head as much to see the traffic beside me.<br>The first open position on the shield almost looks as if it is still shut allowing for a rush of fresh air to be pushed through the helmet. None of the positions were pushed shut by the wind.
PART 2 - THE TK1200 IS QUICKLY BECOMING THE BEST HELMET I HAVE WORN!
Fit/Finish/Weight:<br>WOW, it seems much lighter than ½ pound less than most helmets.<br>Lining: <br>The fit is very comfortable, cheek pads snap in/out in a normal manner.<br>There are ear-pads that can also be added in conjunction with the cheek pads to help dampen the road noise.<br>There is a small removable section of the core impact liner at the rear bottom of the helmet that when removed keeps my ponytail from pressing in to the back of my head.<br>The neck roll is a bit difficult to remove/re-install.<br>This made installing the Harley-Davidson CB communications mount a bit difficult. I did have to enlarge the cutouts for the speakers slightly by compressing the liner a very small amount.
PART 3 - THE TK1200 IS QUICKLY BECOMING THE BEST HELMET I HAVE WORN!
Chin bar:<br>Being a Harley rider we tend to choose "interesting" hydration methods. I use a Contigo insulated 20oz bottle. The chin bar is positioned low so I do not need to open the helmet fully to take a drink. <br>The chin bar allows enough room for the mic on my comm kit to fit inside the helmet easily. This also leaves room for use of a CamelBak without opening the helmet fully.<br>To open the helmet is a simple push up on the button in the center.<br>The chin bar does open to a normal position but can be rotated all the way to the back of the helmet with a slightly harder push. A safety feature to keep from injuring the neck if something happens while the helmet is open.<br>Installation of the chin curtain is where I wish I had a small diagram for accessory installation.<br>The chin curtain was not installed on mine out of the box. It does just snap in and out, but without documentation I was hesitant to just pull the trim apart.
PART 4 - THE TK1200 IS QUICKLY BECOMING THE BEST HELMET I HAVE WORN!
Road noise:<br>My Harley-Davidson is fitted with a Klock Werks Flare windscreen which helps divert some of the wind from my helmet. Because of my height I always get noise from wind rushing by and usually ride with foam earplugs.<br>While the C3 is the quietest I have ridden in the TK1200 does an excellent job on minimizing normal noises.<br><br>I can not wait to live in this helmet on my ride to Alaska this summer!
